In Chibok, Borno state, suicide bombers, suspected to have been sent by Boko Haram, bombed a crowded market on 27 January, killing at least 17 civilians and a soldier and injuring at least 30 others. Following the government troop recovery of the town, the market had reopened that day for the first time since Boko Haram took over Chibok two years ago.
